Yesterday was a very special day for me! I had the opportunity to photograph not only an amazing couple, but to celebrate another family wedding–My (second) cousin Cheryl and her new wife Melissa! I was honored when these two asked me to photograph their big day for them. They chose Blissful Meadows in Uxbridge, MA as their venue, which I’ve had the chance to photograph a few times before. The grounds are gorgeous and perfect for wedding photography.
Something special about this beautiful couple: Cheryl and Melissa are both on the Uxbridge, MA fire department. Which was incorporated into their big day in so many ways–Including their amazing cake from Wright’s Dairy Farm & Bakery, adorable, custom cake topper of them with their two dogs, and even booking an antique fire truck for some pictures! After getting ready, these two exchanged their rings at an outdoor ceremony in front of the beautiful gazebo. Melissa even surprised Cheryl with her grandmother’s ring during the vows. It was such a special moment in their lives and you could see just how incredibly happy they were to finally tie the knot and officially be Mrs & Mrs! You can also see how excited both of their Mom’s were to share in these memories (I love the photo of them walking down the aisle together!).
After some portraits outside, they were ready to dance the night away at their reception. Their party space was set up beautifully–Their awesome cake on display, custom rainbow lights behind their sweetheart table, and a gorgeous rainbow flower arrangement on every guest table. They began the evening with an emotional first dance under the twinkling lights and their Friends and family soon filled the dance floor to celebrate this special wedding day with them.
I had so much fun celebrating alongside our family for this wonderful event. I wish Cheryl & Melissa the very best in their future together as a married couple! They are so incredibly sweet and deserve many, many, many years of love and happiness. Thank you so very much for letting me capture these memories for you! Here are some of my favorite photos from their wedding day.
